Hi Casey,

This got me thinking about how this would be done.  Looking at glibc
I think the first argument of the futex() syscall is the __data.__lock
member of pthread_mutex_t.

https://github.com/bminor/glibc/blob/43b1048ab9418e902aac8c834a7a9a88c501620a/nptl/pthread_mutex_lock.c#L43

If I change epicsMutexOsdShow() in posix/osdThread.c to:

> void epicsMutexOsdShow(struct epicsMutexOSD * pmutex, unsigned int level)
> {
> #if defined(__linux__) && defined(__GLIBC__)
>     /* GLIBC w/ NTPL is passing the &__lock as the first argument (UADDR)
>      * of the futex() syscall.
>      */
>     printf("    pthread uaddr=%p\n", &pmutex->lock.__data.__lock);
> #endif

and apply

https://github.com/epics-base/epics-base/commit/d1149a0ba90096b3aa2890029ed9a430216d96ec

then I think the uaddr value shown below can be matched to futex() calls.
(I couldn't find a quick way to check this)
